People who generously give their time, effort and skills to our mission make a difference in the lives of hundreds of families every week.  Together we put food in their cupboards and on their tables.

 

 We are welcome new volunteers  who are able to join us for at least one shift, once a month, for a minimum of three months.  Most jobs include packing/lifting/moving bags or boxes that weight 15 pounds (or more) and walking.

Students age 17 or older may volunteer without an adult. Younger teens or children must be accompanied by an adult.

 

There are a variety of jobs you can do to help at our pantry outdoors or COVID-safe indoor locations:

  • Outdoor Set up

  • Packing Produce Bags

  • Packing Cold Orders

  • Packing Grocery and Kids Club Bags (flexible schedules including weekends)

  • Giving Groceries to Shoppers

  • Translation Services (Haitian Creole, Spanish, Russian)

  • Flattening Boxes and Tidying Up

Pantry shifts are typically two hours:

Every TUESDAY 10AM until 6PM | First SATURDAY of the Month 10AM until 3PM

You can help unload our food deliveries:

First, Fourth and Fifth THURSDAY, Noon-1:30PM

Third FRIDAY, 10AM-11:30AM

Guidelines for Volunteers

We ask that all CSFP volunteers demonstrate our core values of mutual respect and kindness. It helps if you can add a little patience and good humor, too! 

Click the envelope              to read our Guidelines so you are prepared to volunteer with us.

In the meantime, be assured that there will always be a staff and/or board member present during your volunteer shift to answer your questions and give you guidance.
